Very moving and inspiring story.

I picked up this book is part of my journey with anxiety and depression. I've traced a lot of my anxious reasoning to a general pessimistic view on life. I've explored a few books on optimism including authors like Martin Seligman and now Jim Stovall. I find that they are potentially links in a chain of changing one's Behavior and thinking patterns from those that generate anxiety and self-doubt to thoughts of hopefulness and success. Although I didn't find the book packed with useful tools, as I had hoped, there were some valuable insights. I think the overall messaging painted a picture of what a budding Optimist must do in order to change one's thinking and develop a more positive outlook on their future.
